2022 Guidelines

DLL COVID-19 Spring 2022 Protocols

Downtown Little league is committed to maintaining a safe environment for our participants. Currently we are adhering to NYC DOE protocols when it comes to contracting or being exposed to Covid-19.

These protocols are as follows:

Isolation Period

The isolation period for children in grades K-12 with a positive COVID-19 test result has been shortened to five day from ten days. This means if your child tests positive for COVID-19 and is in kindergarten or higher, your child can return to DLL activities on Day 6. 

  • Children can return from isolation on Day 6 if they have no symptoms or their symptoms are improving, and they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.
  • Children returning from isolation on Day 6 must wear a well-fitting mask such as a KN95, KF94, or a cloth mask over a disposable surgical mask on Days 6–10.

Children in Pre-K and under who test positive for COVID-19 still must isolate for 10 days. 

Please be aware that any child (in any grade) who has completed their isolation period is NOT required to show proof of a negative test result before being allowed to return to school or work.


Quarantine for COVID-19 Exposure 

The quarantine period for children exposed to COVID-19 has been shortened.

If your child is NOT fully vaccinated and was exposed to COVID-19 outside of a school setting, your child must quarantine for at least 5 days; this is reduced from 10 days.

  • If your child is fully vaccinated and was exposed outside of school, your child can continue to attend DLL activities so long as they do not have any symptoms.
  •  Children who are in Pre-K only need to quarantine for five days if they are symptom-free, have a negative test, and are able to wear a well-fitting mask through Day 10. This has been shortened from ten days. 
  • These children must have a negative COVID-19 test from a health care provider on Day 5 OR two negative home test results from Day 4 and Day 5.

​​​​​​​Please remember to follow these important actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:    

1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing). 

2. Wear a face covering if you are symptomatic or exposed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

3. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.
